    Episode 219: Getting Real and Personal About Crisis Options

    Episode 219: Getting Real and Personal About Crisis Options

    This is an interesting episode. I honestly don't know if I'll keep it posted forever. It has been an exhausting and scary week. So I turned on the mic and just got real with you. My wife is struggling with her mental health and we have had to navigate the options for more intensive treatment, which has been extremely frustrating. I talk about inpatient hospitalization, residential programs, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient programs, and more. Basically, I ramble about what we are going through as a family for almost an hour. It's raw and it's real. I hope it helps you feel less alone.

    Episode 218: Lifestyle and Habit Changes for Anxiety

    Hello, friends! I hope that where ever you are, you are not absolutely melting from heat like I am. Even if you are, go chill in the air conditioning and settle in because this episode's a long one. 
    In this episode, I share the audio from THREE whole lessons of my online course, Kick Anxiety's Ass. These lessons talk all about structural changes to your life that you can make and habits that you can build to further support your anxiety conquest.
    Since each lesson is over 20 minutes, this episode clocks in at well over an hour.

    Episode 217: Communication and Active Listening Tips

    Episode 217: Communication and Active Listening Tips

    Hello, all! Thanks for having some patience with the lack of an episode last week. I think it was worth it because this is a packed episode. In this week's episode, I dive deep into my favorite tips and techniques to make you a better communicator and a better listener. In the field, we call these "active listening" techniques and they are the fundamental techniques that all therapists learn to help people open up and trust them.
    Here are the tips covered:
    You have more than one shot. Pay attention to emotional state. Listen before speaking. Nonverbal behaviors. Open-ended questions. Restatements. Reflections. Silence. I think you'll get a lot out of this episode! 
    Please continue sending me your questions and episode ideas to duffthepsych@gmail.com
